AI Data Services and Machine Learning

AI Data Services and Machine Learning are going to transform the global marketplace in the coming years, and your business needs to be ready to take full advantage of the opportunities that this powerful technology provides.  EPIC Translations is ready to be your partner in the exciting world of AI data services.

One of the most important aspects of machine learning is pattern recognition.  For instance, if an onboard computer is driving a car, that computer will need to recognize other cars, pedestrians, traffic signals, and obstacles.  It will also need to know where the road is going.  Artificial intelligence will allow the computer to recognize all these, and navigate to its destination.

But in order for the AI system to recognize all these things, it will need examples. For example, before you turn your computer-controlled car loose, you need to provide it with many pictures of cars and pedestrians and all the other things part of our natural infrastructure it will encounter on the road, so your AI can learn what to watch for.

That takes a lot of data, and that data needs to be annotated so the AI can learn from it.

As it turns out, Artificial Intelligence has also been used for years as a tool for machine translation.  Computers have been taught to recognize words and follow grammar of dozens of languages in order to translate them.  EPIC Translations is a certified and value-added partner with SYSTRAN, one of the world’s leaders in machine translation software.

That makes EPIC Translations a natural place to turn to process all sorts of AI data services for machine learning.  We already have experience using “sentiment analysis” to review Twitter data and detect hate speech that could lead to unrest versus positive or neutral tweets.  We have also helped companies analyze audio files so they can develop virtual assistants that can respond to speech, similar to Siri or Cortana. We have also generated more than a million phrases of original content used by Samsung for their AI tools.

But while our AI work might begin with translations and communication, it doesn’t end there.  We helped develop a machine-learning system that gave apartment-hunters recommendations based on their preferences, and we’ve provided data used for AI systems that predicted oil pressure flowing through refining facilities, projected the course of the Coronavirus outbreak, and helped machines recognize outbreaks of crop diseases.

EPIC Translations is ready to help you prepare data for all sorts of machine learning operations.  If your data is visual, we can review images and set up “bounding boxes” highlighting examples of objects you want to call to the system’s attention, be they animals or cars or people, or we can input more complex polygons that specify the particular shapes that an artificial intelligence should be watching for.  We can also highlight “lines and splines” that illustrate borders or pathways (roads, sidewalks, trails, rivers, etc.) that an AI system can learn to navigate.

But we can do even more than data collection and annotation; EPIC Translations will help you plan, collect data, analyze, and then evaluate your AI system, honing its ability to recognize patterns and respond to input.  We are leaders in providing “microservices” — systems that provide answers for customers using the insights developed by AI.  For EPIC Translations, machine learning isn’t just a matter of collecting data, marking it up, and feeding it to a machine, it’s a process of adjustment and improvement, and then using well-developed AI to deliver great service to our customers.

Our vast experience with the use of artificial intelligence in translation services makes EPIC Translations the leaders in data collection, data annotation, data validation, and linguistic services which allows a system to detect motives and anticipate how people will respond — positively or negatively — to an image, sound, or words.  How people will react is heavily influenced by their language and culture, and EPIC Translations staff has a keen understanding of cultures around the globe.

Artificial Intelligence will revolutionize global commerce.  The possibility for a computer to learn and adapt on its own, to develop its own responses without being tied down to the specific instructions of a program, will not only lead to new products and services, but also help new countries to become regional powers if they can master the use of AI.
